Captain America: Civil War seems like it could be another Avengers installment with so many members of the MCU reprising their roles for Cap’s third outing. But that’s kind of the point, since this film is primed to make major waves in the Marvel universe, completely altering the future of our heroes. New set photos definitely confirm how much of a superhero party this is, with Jeremy Renner, Robert Downey Jr., Paul Rudd and more hanging out on set.
Captain America: Civil War continues to film outdoors in Atlanta, which is currently standing in for the fictional African nation of Wakanda, home to the Black Panther. We brought you a first look at Frank Grillo as Crossbones, the new villain, and today you can get a look at Crossbones and Captain America in a major fight scene, including some video from the set!
When Frank Grillo’s character was introduced in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, he seemed like a decent dude; working for S.H.I.E.L.D. alongside Chris Evans’ Cap to save a bunch of kidnapped hostages. But for longtime Marvel readers, Grillo’s character’s name, Brock Rumlow, was a major red flag. In the comics, Rumlow is the real name of Crossbones, a deranged super-villain and frequent associate of the Red Skull. Sure enough, by the end of Winter Soldier, Grillo’s Rumlow revealed his true allegiance to Hydra (an organization created by none other than Red Skull) and squared off with Anthony Mackie’s Falcon in hand-to-hand combat.
It looks like the sequel to last year's Captain America: The First Avenger will be taking more than its subtitle from Ed Brubaker's just-completed eight-year run with the character. Actor Frank Grillo has joined the cast of 2014's Captain America: The Winter Soldier, signing on to play the man who killed Steve Rogers...
